Overview of the Echo PB-8010T
- Power: The PB-8010T, built by Echo, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 1071 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 211 MPH.
- Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 24.5 lbs, the Echo PB-8010T is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
- Engine: The blower is fitted with a 79.9 cc engine. Being that this is a 2-stroke engine, it must be fuelled using a mix of gas and oil. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer for the PB-8010T is 50:1.
- Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the PB-8010T offers variable speed settings.
- Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 79.3 dB.
- Fuel Tank: With a tank that can hold 83.8 fluid ounces, this model has a much higher fuel capacity than you’ll typically find with gas backpack blowers.
